Controversial Republican Virginia Lieutenant Governor nominee E.W. Jackson made a very strange campaign video when he was running for Senate in 2012.
After a Founding Father hands Jackson an axe decorated with the American flag, Jackson proceeds to demonstrate how he'll "fix" the country's problems.
The problems are represented by fruit, specifically melons.
The federal budget fruit is the first to meet the axe...
Followed by unemployment...
And, finally, Obamacare.
It's just really weird.
